Park Orchards is a suburb in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.

There is a common misconception that Park Orchards was designed by Walter Burley Griffin. The design was in fact carried out in 1926 by the well-known Melbourne firm of Tuxen and Miller. Griffin had no involvement in the Park Orchards subdivision. The misconception has arisen because the Griffins worked with Tuxen on an earlier subdivision, Ranelagh. Saxil Tuxen himself is increasingly recognised in his own right, with Park Orchards being one of the most complete examples of his work.

The suburb is home to the Park Orchards Tennis Club, Basketball Club, Netball Club and BMX club. (Source: Wiki)
